Carol Prusa

Artist Statement Submitted 2019

Drawn to the unknown, I became an artist to work outside limits and established methods. Like scientists, I seek new ways to explain our place. Digesting contemporary theories in physics and seeking liminal spaces (like eclipses), is resulting in work that creates worlds with erotically charged geometries. Known for large scale silverpoint drawings incorporating sculptural forms and new technologies, my darkly lit worlds distill disquieting possibilities brought to mind by recent observations of the metastable Higgs boson particle in physics that might instantaneously blip us out of existence (as well as eruptive political and environmental events), that fill my mind with dread. I yearn to realize a radical vision that takes into account chaotic interactions central to the evolution of the universe, to unearth its vital beauty. I seek to give form to thin spaces that evoke the dark matter that both surrounds and binds us together.
